It is easy to build a post and beam barn kit.

All the complicated work has been done for you.

No need to learn mortise and tenon joinery. No need to figure out the right angles to cut or where to drill your holes. In a kit your joinery and cuts have all been laid out and cut ahead of time. All you need to do is bolt your barn frame together and stand it up.


You have a plan.

No need to scratch your head trying to figure out how all these posts and beams go together. With a kit you have a professionally drawn set of plans and a step by step construction guide that are easy to follow.
